Abstract

In the 1D interpretation of magnetotelluric data, it is often useful to discover a reasonable first-approximation to the true conductivity-depth distribution beneath the recording location. This may be undertaken in the field, in order to ascertain if the station spacing is satisfactory or whether a greater station density of coverage is required, or at the base laboratory, as a prelude to a more sophisticated 1D inversion of the data.
